A number of years ago in the high Cascades of the PNW I ran into a Veteran who was hiking the entire Pacific Crest Trail to raise money for Veteran Suicide Awareness. Well he finished that hike, starting in California and Finishing at the Canadian Border. Epic Journey.
Well last year Alex started another epic adventure and this time his goal was to take on the American Discovery Trail. After many months and as many sets of boots he finished that hike as well. Starting on the beach in Maryland and just recently finishing on the beach in Southern California. I wanted to share this because I felt, and still feel inspired by his journey. So if as a Veteran you ever get in a low spot, que up one of his videos of his epic hike and take the time to put your self in his boots for a moment.
